Code

O'nine Software

Contains all robotics related code - Autonomous Navigation, Kinematics Solver, and high level scripts to accomplish pick and place tasks.

Alexa - Robot integration

Contains all the codes that integrate Alexa Skill with the robotics system - Lambda App (NodeJS), Robot Tasker (A PubNub client that waits for Alexa commands and runs high level scripts to perform robot tasks).

Robot Base

This is another project of mine - Linorobot. It is a suite of Open Source ROS compatible robots that aims to provide students, developers, and researchers a low-cost platform in creating new exciting applications on top of ROS.
